Community Food Centres Canada

You use food to show you care. So do we.

This Giving Tuesday, we're celebrating the food heroes in our lives, and inviting you to do the same. Show your food hero you care by making a donation to Community Food Centres Canada on their behalf. We'll let them know you're thinking of them with a personalized card and gift booklet filled with recipes and stories from our favourite chefs. And, together, you'll know you're helping us reach even more low-income Canadians with empowering food programs that build better health, hope, and belonging. 

What's the impact your gift will have? At Community Food Centres Canada, we build and support vibrant spaces in low-income neighbourhoods where people can share a great meal, learn cooking and gardening skills, make new friends — and know that someone cares about them. Because no one should ever feel alone or ashamed when they can’t afford food. Read our 2016 impact:

The reach: 31,000 community members reached. 110,000 healthy meals served. 1,250 food skills program sessions offered 1,050 community action sessions offered.

The change: 93% of people surveyed say their Community Food Centre is an important source of healthy food. 52% have noticed improvements in their physical health. 92% feel they belong to a community at their Community Food Centre.
